... kinda, but different.. I listen to some bands just because the lead singer has a sexy voice, but in general they suck... and I also listen to some songs because they annoy others.

but I've often repeated a song over and over just for the instrumentals.

I wouldn't call any type of music a guilty pleasure. If you like it then it is good music. I love techno and electronic music and I get called gay because of it all the time. I listen to any kind of music and I think it is important to have an open mind and give everything a chance. Don't disregard music because of stereotypes associated with the genre. Listen to what you want and don't worry about what people think! Give "emo" and "techno" and all those other genres people hate a chance. There is really some good stuff. In fact, I would be proud if someone called my music "emo" because I believe that the main focus of music should be emotion and music lacking emotion is not music. Although my music doesn't fit the stereotypes of the "emo" genre, I would define it as emotional because every kind of good music is performed or composed with emotion. Sorry for the essay, but I have been meaning to vent this since my girlfriend told me she thought I was addicted to drugs because I like ska music. That was ridiculous! Thanks.

Edit: By the way Jamiroquai has some really cool stuff. I like the song from Napoleon Dynamite called "Canned Heat" and the song "Deeper Under Ground." It's really groovin' and the bass lines are unbelievably slick. That's not guilty pleasure - That's just awesome music...

Musical stereotypes are a bitch aren't they? Alot of kids at school thought I smoked weed just because I adore Tool. How wrong they are

I can play like 9 songs from The Pixies, and I can't stand them.


Also, I can play some Paramore. I don't like the music, but I would very much enjoy the company of their lead singer.

Umm...I listen to some bands only for vocals, but i suppose that isn't such a bad thing. For people at my school me listening to jazz would my guilty pleasure cus i'm always like RAWR METAL

I s******edgiggled at this until I remembered I have the original vinyls for The Jungle Book, and The Rescuers... TBH I only don't listen to them 'cos I don't have a deck!

I have very broad tastes tho; I have covers of ELO's Ma Ma Belle, and Human League's Being Boiled in the pipeline. Other guilty pleasures are measured by how much my love wants to smash them up. Georgia Satellites are at the top of the list!
Jamiroquai is an excellent choice however, I can spend hours listening to his arrangements. Stuart Zender =

what the ****? I listen to TONS of ska and I've never been told I was addicted to drugs. The closest thing to that was listening to The Aggrolites and getting called a pot smoker.
I like to listen to D&B ever since Dan (MastaBassist10) got me into it.

They consist of John Petrucci, Mike Portnoy, and Jordan Rudess (all from Dream Theater), and Tony Levin (King Crimson). All instrumental orgasmness.

Nothing with Stuart Zender playing bass on it is a guilty pleasure.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

No kidding! It might be a shock to many of you that mean-ol'-prickly-ol' Fitzy is a huge Disney fanboy. I've been to Disney World almost 10 times now. Hell, I'm currently planning another trip. So I guess that's a guilty pleasure.

The privilege of being a musician (even an amateur) is that you can appreciate any music without being guilty to anything.
I don't know how 'wrong' Jamariquai is, but the same discussions pops up whenever ultra light, poppy pop music is concerned. Elitist culture buffs tend to look down upon this music and on those who listen to it, but we know that this view is unjustified. The fact that music is produced on an industrial scale without much artistic intend doesn't mean it isn't good. The best composers and the finest musicians earn a living in that industry, and when these people go for it they can really pull something off. There is a lot of really awesome stuff to be heard in commercials, family film sound tracks, tv tunes and pop songs aimed at 14 year old girls.
Elitist culture buffs don't hear that; they only have their friends to tell them what's good. Poor sods.

(btw My sin is greater than yours. I love to hear Alan Jackson and these cheap and shallow lyrics actually bring tears to my eyes)

I'm not a very big fan of Stadium Arcadium. But it's a alright album.
But yeah, they have every type of mood in their songs.

Thanks for the memories, indeed.

They weren't even that great.

I, too, find myself humming the sugar coated pop nonsense at the oddest moments. We all know Grand Theft Autumn is a fun song.

Old school dance music and gospel music. And odd bits of 1960s and 70s pop music. I could give Lenny Kaye a run in the Nuggets department of odd 45s and singles.

And the old Disney soundtracks are great, though not much a fan of the more modern stuff.

Jungle Book? Hello, that has Louie Prima on it! How awesome it that, I ask you.

Absolutely true. You don't need to be a musician to be open minded to many kinds of music. My hypothesis only works the other way round. My observation is that narrow minded genre buffs ('if you listen to that wrong music you can't be taken seriously by me and my group of people') are seldom musicians and if they are, they suck. It's always funny to watch those people shift taste whenever a trend setter in their group says something nice about some formerly wrong band or artist. Then suddenly the next day they tell everybody how underestimated that band or artist is, but that they themselves knew all along it was very good and that they always have said so.
